Mathematician with two doctorates available to tutor all math subjects in Gales Ferry

Methodology

My teaching method is to get the students involved and participating. I have students do work that I can check and provide suggestions and help to. I want students to be able to think and solve problems that are not straight out of the textbook.

Background

I have a D.A. and Ph.D. in mathematics. I have taught math on campus and online for many years. I have also tutored math for many years. I have taught anything from arithmetic to graduate mathematics. I have tutored all ages and levels including famous athletes and actors.

Rates

Transportation Fee : $10
Rate for online lessons : $40/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $45
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $40
